Hotel La Palma Capri

La Dolce Vita in Hotel La Palma

The original hotel on Capri is one of the chicest address on the island for people who want to see and be seen. Each of the 50 rooms – including 18 suites – offer its own private balcony or terrace.

Marking his first-ever hotel design project, world leading interiors maestro Francis Sultana has completely reimagined Hotel La Palma to create the modern-day embodiment of la dolce vita. In addition, Sultana oversaw the transformation of Da Gioia by La Palma, the hotel’s exclusive beach club in Marina Piccola.

Hotel La Palma offers an indulgent Spa with three treatment rooms, including one double treatment suite, a sauna, steam bath and ice shower, relaxation space and fitness centre.

Located in the beating heart of Capri, just around the corner from the famous Piazza Umberto I – well-known as the ‘Piazzetta’ – Hotel La Palma is perfectly positioned for guests to visit some of the most notable sites of Capri: I Giardini di Augusto, Via Krupp, La Certosa and the iconic Faraglioni. Another of the island’s best-known, must-visit natural sites in easy reach from the hotel is the ‘Grotta Azzurra’ – the Blue Grotto – a dark cavern where the sea glows electric blue, the result of sunlight passing through an underwater cave. 

History & heritage

Since 1822, Hotel La Palma – formerly known as Locanda Pagano – is the oldest hotel on Capri. The original owner, notary Giuseppe Pagano, hosted travellers in his villa for the pleasure of long conversations and often, his guests were artists, poets, writers, architects, painters and musicians, all who showed their gratitude by painting the walls, writing poems, singing and playing in what was dubbed the ‘Artists’ Hotel.’ A collective of creatives began to gather from all over the world who were inspirited by the genius loci, charmed by the smooth, familiar atmosphere of this eccentric hotel.

In true Italian fashion, Hotel La Palma is a gourmand’s delight, with Gennaro’s restaurant, bar and terrace, under the culinary direction of Chef Gennaro Esposito. Esposito is a true name in the region, having run his own two-Michelin Star restaurant, Torre del Saracino, for the last 23 years.

A simple, stylish step back in time to the Capri of the 1950s, Gennaro’s embraces the timeless romance of the island, serving unpretentious, authentic Italian cuisine.
